Forest Feline. A Poem by Robin Ouzman Hislop

forest feline fir purring
    dusks dawns this wastrel man his vagrant days that like tattered rags clothe his face as autumn leaves fall we walk together now to listen talk where both our persons are now diminished before the tempest of ice
& fire consumes us once more but soft ye now I will feed you with my blood let me breathe your music as my words already bawdy in the day with the pantomime we play on this our funeral day – hooray
    i care not for the molecules of kings nor the stratagem of regimes where we walk diminished in our pain
& yet I say we will regain & you
    will come again jaguar moon forest feline purring your dawn dusk’s born hawthorn & the rowan the red berries growing a van flashes by our simulacra i have nothing to offer you but my blood in your music
beyond our most unreasonable crime (before the human territorial voice in) invades & after the sun shines it’s sudden shine our end begins
    as I stumble through the straw but this is beech place not pine though i guess it’s the same decline
in the end & the skyline rang out release me

Cowboys & Injuns. A Poem by Robin Ouzman Hislop

 
 
 

return the pastureland to nature

 

we ask too much of the cow

given the little we give back

let the predator the herbivore the pollinator

return

let the buffalo roam

O detritus spreader – but no

let the cow provide

the anthropocene is not only importuning

it is invading

there could be in the world

a discourse worldwide

but who speaks first

why does a plant become a tree

the forest is an orchestration

an instrumentation

not a tool

our hunger is as the hunger of the polar bear’s

eating us

 

more than a threat to an endangered species

we were that

that made you what you are

on a shoal of whales
